If your bachelor party seeks out tourist traps when travelling, and lives for boat shoes and sea breezes, this is your hotel. Set in historic Fisherman’s Wharf, the Argonaut brings the bay’s nautical past into its interiors. And while the staff is available to suggest day trips and book dinners, do not anticipate retiring back for late night cordials as its bar closes at 9pm. Instead, this place is for starters (complimentary wine is served from 5-6pm). Plan to kick the party off in the room or the bar before going to do damage elsewhere.

Venue Tip: 

Sign up for Kimpton Karma and you’ll get the chance to Raid the minibar. It sounds useless now but can be a game (and wallet) saver late-night.

The Good: 
The location allows for the option to walk to Pier 39 and stumble back after a night out on the town.
The Bad: 
No pool, no late night bar, no late night swimming with a drink.
